Success Criteria
Data Set 1from In class (Dice/Pom-Poms/ Coin Flip/ Card Deck):

I described, in 1-3 sentences, what I did to obtain my data. A tally of my data has been included.
The theoretical and experimental probabilities for each outcome were calculated
The theoretical and experimental probabilities were both represented in the following ways each:
o Bar graph (by hand or computer)
o Circle graph (by hand or computer)
I have compared, in 1-3 sentences, my experimental results to the theoretical results. I have provided
possible reasons for any differences.

Random Number Generator Activity Sheet

The Yays or Nays election activity worksheet has been completed.


I have answered the questions thoroughly, drawn my graphs to scale, and labelled them clearly.

Data Set 2 (Survey Questioning):

A total of 5 different survey questions were created, with appropriate target audiences stated for each.
At least one gives continuous data, and at least one gives discrete data.
AT LEAST ONE survey question was asked to a specific sample (the class, people in the cafeteria, etc.),
and that question gave continuous data.
I explained my choice of sample.
I identified my sampling strategy, and explained why I chose this strategy.
I have a minimum of 25 pieces of data from my survey.
I clearly stated whether this information is from a primary or secondary source.
I have identified and explained the biases present in my survey (in both the sampling technique and
the wording of my question).
I have given suggestions to lessen the bias.
I have determined the mean, median, and mode of my survey responses.
I have determined the range of my survey responses.
I have determined the variance of my survey responses.
I have determined the standard deviation of my survey responses.
My data is graphically represented in ALL of the following ways:
o Circle graph
o Bar graph
o Histogram
I have described the shape of the distribution of my bar graph (normal, bimodal, or skewed) and have
justified why I feel that it is this distribution.

This information may be handed in as a physical portfolio (on paper, in a duo-tang), an electronic presentation
(PowerPoint, Prezi, video, etc.). If handed in on the check-in days, your assignment will be evaluated, given
back, and may be resubmitted on the final deadline with corrections made. All portions of the final product
are due on the final deadline.

Random Number Generator Assignment

A public opinion poll was taken before an election. People were asked who
they planned to vote for: The Yays or The Nays. The results are shown in the bar
graph shown. (55% for the Yays, 45% for the Nays).

For this activity, you will use a random number generator to simulate the actual
election. Any number 1-55 will be considered a vote for the Yays, while any
number 56-100 will be considered a vote for the Nays.

1. On the random number generator, set the minimum number to 1 and the maximum number to 100.
Then, run 100 trials (by clicking generate), and record the numbers that appear in the chart below:

2. Tally your numbers as votes for the Yays or Nays. In the box, create a bar graph representing the votes.
Represent the number of votes as a percent of total votes (like the bar graph of the preliminary results
above).

Vote Results
The Yays The Nays

Total: _____ Total: _____


% of Votes: _____ % of Votes: _____
Name: ________________

3. Represent your data in the form of a circle graph.


votes
Yays: 360 = 360 = _______
100 100

votes
Nays: 360 = 360 = _______
100 100

4. Who won the election? How do these results compare to the initial poll?

5. Why do you think we chose 1-55 to represent a vote for the Yays, and 56-100 to represent a vote for
the Nays?

6. Why might the actual election results differ from a preliminary poll (make reference to real-life
situations, NOT the random number generator).
